National Disability Insurance Scheme – South Division Community Forum

By Sophy Jennings on November 22nd, 2015

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national program that will provide a new way of delivering services and support for people with permanent and significant disability in Australia. It will give people with a disability more choice and control over the services and supports they receive, to live the life they want and play an active role in the community.

The Victorian Government has reached a historic agreement with the Commonwealth, securing the roll out of the NDIS across Victoria. Following this important first step, the government will be holding a community forum in Frankston on the NDIS and would like to invite all interested community members to attend.

At this forum, you will hear from Martin Foley MP, Victorian Minister for Disability, Housing and Ageing and the National Disability Insurance Agency about the roll out of the NDIS in South Division. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions about the scheme.

This forum is open to service users, carers, providers and the general public.  If you have not yet registered please ensure that you RSVP as soon as possible as seats are limited.

Date: 2 December 2015

Time: 10.00 – 12.00 Venue: Frankston Arts Centre Crn Young & Davey St
